You've lost a friend, or friends in a horrific mass shooting where you were in doubt of your own survival. Then the President blames their deaths on the FBI, when the foreign only division working on Russia election infiltration is separate from the one handling domestic crimes.

There is a prominent trait of Trump's I wish none of us would emulate: His finger-pointing and judging.

Unmentioned, is Grant's good friend who kept tabs on him during his military service and headed off alcohol relapses. When ppl complained to Lincoln about Grant's drinking, Lincoln was said to say, "Find out his brand of whisky so I can sent it to all my Generals."

Anyway, I’ve interviewed some of the shooting survivors. Don’t look down on them because of their age. They are very smart, very savvy, very pissed, and they know the effect they’re having.

On top of that, when kids are the victims, the public responds much more emotionally than other types of shootings. And since these kids in particular have something to say, there’s a massive audience for whatever their message is.

Let's not judge.. People handle grief, each in his/her own way. Anger is an easier emotion to handle than grief, so many are redirecting their grief through their anger at their losses. As for having 'the time." Mickey Rooney &Judy Garland planned out plays in less time.

Sentencing of Dr. Larry Nassar, convicted of abusing child gymnasts, all began with the work of a team of investigative journalists. / Thankful for these purveyors of 'fake news.'

So far, Parkland is *not* fading from the news the way that mass shootings usually do. (The graph shows Google searches for the term "gun control".) The students speaking out makes a pretty big difference.
